This is a MUST do tour if you are visiting, or like me, you live in the UAE. Great picture opportunities and great tour guide Captain Thara to inform you of the relevant sites. 10 out of 10. Gary Malone. Fujairah UAE.

I found out about TYB while looking for something to do in Dubai during my short stay that wasn't 1) bank-breaking and 2) a ridiculous time commitment. I settled on this tour and I do think I made the right decision! First, the pros: -Our guide Tharak was an excellent source of information and provided all the necessary details on... More

Took a Yellow Boats 90min ride from Dubai Marina around the Palm, across to the Burj and returning. Boat was a fast speedboat so a mixture of adrenaline mixed with sigh-seeing as there were plenty of pauses to see the sights and take photos. Worth looking for the half-price vouchers as then would be a great deal. Recommended.

Loved this excursion - very very fast boat!! Raced through the sea to see the Atlantis Hotel, the Burj Arab Hotel and the Kings Palace & Boat. The tour guide was very informative and took very good photos of us at the front of the boat with these iconic buildings in the background. A very good value and worthwhile experience.

We wanted to go on the yellow boat so went to the marina to book it. There was no spaces left for the last boat but the staff arranged another trip so we could do this otherwise we were not able to due to not having time after that particular day. The staff went through safety procedures and then we... More

We spent a brilliant 90 minutes with Captain Will.I.Am at the helm. He was full of interesting facts and great with the camera giving us lots of memories to take home with us. I would thoroughly recommend this exciting boat trip round The Palm and the Burj Al Arab.

If you are looking for a speedy rib ride, this is defenitly not the choice. But you are looking at the ultimate choice if all you want it to have quick tour of attractions without getting stuck in traffic for hours. The guide is the best in his job, he clicks fantastic picturs of you at the attractions. We has... More
